I'll bet you don't need much more inspiration. :grin:

Whenever I went parking the Police would shine torches into the car.

Drive In Theatres were best. ;)

Here's the Clues for TOP TEN #5.

1. Could describe Tom Cruise and John Travolta. (Not "Crazy").

2. What's she got ? Their first Hit (in the 80s).

3. Written by one of the Group for another who was homesick for a warmer climate.

4. Hot song. Has sounds of car horns and a pneumatic drill (jackhammer).

5. Big 70s gospel style 'one hit wonder' for a Jewish musician.

6. About an "unconsumated" marriage, i.e. nothing happened, and she's devastated.

7. I KNOW ! Please don't keep telling me.

8. The only thing I want to do.

9. Parody on "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds".

10. Crap shooting (dice) can be fatal.

Good Luck ! Hope they're not too difficult.

WELL DONE LAURIE ! You've halved the List. :coolio:

In case anyone is wondering about Ain't No Sunshine / Bill Withers, he says "I know" repeatedly; 26 times in all.

Your other answers:

#1 Nothing to do with Scientology or science particularly.

#2 Venus...Bananarama: Good try, but it doesn't say what she's got !

#8 Just to Dance With You...Beatles???? No

#10 Tumblin Dice...Stones????? No

.................................................

It doesn't look like the thread is such a roaring success. I know many regulars aren't around at the moment, but others who used to participate in my Quizzes have been. That's their choice of course, and I'm not going to be petulant about it. Maybe I'm making the clues too difficult !

:P

As for me, whn I wake up there´s just a couple of questions left... and not the easiest ones! ;) I love your games, Darryl, but time is not on my side...

1. Could describe Tom Cruise and John Travolta. (Not "Crazy").

6. About an "unconsumated" marriage, i.e. nothing happened, and she's devastated.

8. The only thing I want to do.

10. Crap shooting (dice) can be fatal.

#6: "Band of Gold", Freda Payne?

#8: "I just wanna make love to you", Rolling Stones?

Hey, Laurie, I think we should team-up again??! :grin:

#6: "Band of Gold", Freda Payne?:grin:

Thanks dear Edna. Well done on getting Band Of Gold. :thumbsup:

"Last night on our honeymoon, we stayed in separate rooms".

Bit of a wuss wasn't he ? (wuss = never grown up, big baby).

So that leaves 3 Questions to complete Top Ten #5.

Don't forget that I only put songs in my Top Tens that I like, and the #1 is most likely to have been a Big Hit. That is the case here. 8 and 10 were #1 Hits too, I just saw in my Charts Book.

I like to play but I'mnot too good at this and then there are those time/ time zone issues! :P

I'll watch and chip in periodically :) When I think I know something...

I know Radhi. You're very squishy. :)

I don't think you'd know the song for #10, but you've probably heard #1 and also #8 ( the most "recent" song in the List).

"And I'm extremely curious about the Tom Cruise/Travolta question..."

Nothing about their lovelives. And it's not about Scientology, but is about their being involved in it......and the followers of Siggy Freud, for that matter.
